IEC 61850 standard is developed focusing on the improvement of the substation automation. This is accomplished avoiding proprietary protocols in order to integrate different vendors in the same project. At the same time, IEC 61850 uses advanced technologies to reduce cost in wiring and engineering time and it also tries to improve the commissioning and maintenance process. This course will be the best way to start wit IEC 61850.
Within ENSOTEST we have been working with IEC 61850 standard from the very beginning. We have experience in development, conformance testing, automation and commissioning of IEC 61850 projects.
This module details the standard basis, the application areas, the documentation organization and how the standard is involved in different equipment that builds the system.
This module explains the hierarchical information model defined in the standard including the logical nodes, the common data classes and the auxiliary components as the datasets and control blocks.
This module describes the SCL file forma, the file types, and the engineering tools in charge of their edition. The engineering process is also detailed.
This module details how the different services works including the discovery process, the basic exchanges, the reporting and logging, the setpoint modification and commands issuing. The GOOSE and SMV messages are also explained.
This module focuses on the communication protocols used by the standard. The communication with the SCADA and RTU using the MMS protocol is explained. The Ethernet multicast traffic for GOOSE and SMV is also described.
This module details how IEC 61850 standard is applied into the specification and product selection process. In this module it is also described how to configure the different data flows in the system.
This module explains the PICS, MICS, PIXIT and TICS documents provided by the vendor as product documentation. As a user of the system the utility must request some IEC 61850 specific documentation in each project. This documentation is detailed in this module.
This module describes the conformance test process of IEC 61850 and the UCA certificates. The commission process testing and the capabilities provided by the standard for the maintenance process are also explained.
This module explains how to include security measures and how role based access control will be added to IEC 61850 devices.
This module describes the new functionality of edition 2 and the work in progress with the edition 3. In this module we also explain how the standard can be applied to automate hydro power plants, wind farms, distributed energy resources and even for the electrical vehicle chargers.
Automation, protection and control engineers interested in learning about the IEC 61850 standard and its applications.
It is recommended to limit the attendance to 10-12 people to get the best throughput.
The training is run on-site at any suitable location selected by our customer.
The course is delivered in 10 modules over 2 days from 9.00 to 17.00. The training has been designed to be intensive and to minimise the time away of the office. We focus on the critical areas of the standard that are useful in the specification, design, engineering, commissioning and maintenance of IEC 61850 systems.
The learning process is based on presentations with practical examples and interactive exercises.
All the documentation will be delivered in PDF format. A short comprehension test will be requested at the end of the training in order to receive an attendance certificate.
The price is 2400€ plus travelling and lodging costs.
The instructor is Erik San Telmo.
Telecommunication engineer with experience in automation and remote control of electrical systems. Member of several IEC groups within TC57 : Power systems management and associated information exchange.
